is not raising taxes or medicare or social security n. 30 years, medicare and medicaid alone will consume all the revenue coming in taxes. these are unsustainable entitlement programs. they have to be reformed to save the program and to keep the country from going into a greek-reich status. there are $8.6 trillion of unfunded like the in social security. to make it solvent the next 75 years, you valid to put $8 trillion in the bank today. for medicare, it's three times that, so if you don't reform entitlements, you will never avoid the coming grief. post-election, democrats have the wind behind their back, the president does on this. is there any appetite for this or is it going to be a bloodbath? >> a lot of democrats understand that medicare -- social security runs out of money in 2033. medicare runs out of money in 2024. so these programs literally go bankrupt. if you want to save them, you have to restructure them. younger people need to work longer. me and you, we make enough money to pay more into the system without losing our quality of life. age adjustment and means testing will help

't want deep cuts to programs like medicaid, medicare, social security. some republicans say it's the only way to get a deal. >> the reason we're having these negotiations is because washington democrats have spent money without any care for the cost or the future. and refuse to do anything to protect long-term spending programs like medicare, a failure that's among the biggest single drivers of our debt. >> one out of three people in this country are going to rely on medicare and head cade for their health insurance. so we need to find ways to preserve these programs. >> senator durbin says the debate over entitlement programs should be fought after the new year. he's going to join us in a few minutes to talk about it. >>> police on new york's long island investigating a deadly bus crash, a 6-year-old boy was killed last night when the driver of that bus lost control and went barreling into the front bedroom of the boy's home. police say the bus driver swerved to avoid hitting a pedestrian. 11 people on board the bus suffered minor injuries. the boy's 7-year-old briere was hurt but not se

on and the fiscal cliff. we have been working on ways to help medicare savings plans and we will address taxes, but we are ecstatic to have senator durbin here today. he has played such a central role over the last several years and he has literally been part of every conversation that has taken place and he is still here. that is a sign of progress. senator durbin has had a long history of being an advocate for the middle class and he has carried that advocacy in the budget negotiations. he was part of the supercommittee. he was in the fiscal gain of eight, every day involved in these issues. -- gang of eight and every gang involved. stands true for the values of the american people and those people who waited in line to vote in people who voted to want a fair shake out of washington. as a champion of that, and i'm excited to have senator durbin here with us.
